Recently upon returning from the January Board of Directors meeting in Bonita Springs, Florida, I reflected back on the importance of that meeting. It is such an exciting time to have the Chapter Presidents, some veterans and some new, gather in a common goal. That goal is continuing to make AAHAM the premier association in Revenue Cycle Management. Our mission, vision and values continue to support that goal. 2018 begins my presidency’s theme, “RAISE THE LEVEL” Phase III. Your Chapter President will be filling you in on all the great things ahead for our organization and for you, our members.
Your Chapter President has made a commitment to you and all our members, both
locally and nationally. They have committed their time and efforts to make your chapter successful. They have agreed to assist National AAHAM to continue to provide guidance, education and to be the leader in revenue cycle careers.
I think sometimes it is overlooked that National Officers, Committee Chairs, Chapter Presidents and local Board members are volunteers.
All of these volunteers work hard and spend countless hours to provide our membership with information, education and networking in our professions. That is what makes AAHAM so special.
By bringing the Chapter Presidents together, like the January Board of Directors meeting, they are provided the networking opportunity that is so very critical to take on the challenge of leading your Chapter to success. Issues in the local chapters are not unique. Everyone faces similar challenges. Networking opportunities allow us all to discuss those challenges and work collaboratively toward solutions.
“Teamwork is the ability to work toward a common vision, the ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results.”
During our time together, your Chapter President learned about the “new and improved” Chapter Excellence Report, reviewed the Chapter Presidents Manual in detail, learned how to utilize the State Monitoring program and an array of other tasks. Most importantly was that networking thing that you have heard me talk about so many times. They worked hard to absorb the duties and responsibilities
of their commitment to bring you the tools and information to make your chapter grow, prosper, and become the best of the best.
Please, take some time and thank your Chapter President and all the volunteers in your chapter. Perhaps you can add value and become a part of the chapter leadership? It is very rewarding.
The year 2018 brings a second term of me serving as your National President. I take this responsibility very seriously and I am very grateful that you have allowed me this opportunity. I am excited to lead us into the future of this association.
I returned home from this Board of Directors meeting excited and confident that the right plans and right people are in place to accomplish our mission and vision. RAISE THE LEVEL Phase III is “up and running”!
I wish all of you a very successful 2018 in AAHAM, work, and your personal life.
Thanks for all you do!
